Each year, the Marriott Awards of Excellence recognizes the “best of the best” at Marriott International. Established in 1987 and named after our founder, the J. Willard Marriott Award of Excellence honors the company’s finest associates who represent the characteristics of the award: achievement, character, dedication, effort and perseverance.

Additionally, four group awards acknowledge outstanding corporate citizenship, diversity and inclusion efforts, excellence in demonstrating the company’s core values, and creating a TakeCare culture of health and well-being.

All of these stories exemplify the core values of Marriott International.
